Property description

A substantial Grade II listed period property, available for the first time in over twenty years, bursting with stunning features, and incredibly flexible accommodation, including a self-contained 1 bedroom annex in the heart of the oldest part of the town.

Believed to date back to the mid 18th century The Limes has formerly been an Apostolic School, where priests and brothers began their studies. With character and period features in abundance, beautifully presented, and a much-loved family home, it is now offered to the market.

An attractive front door with stained glass windows welcomes you into the light and spacious entrance hallway, which boasts parquet flooring and exposed stone-work, setting the scene for what is to follow in this very special period home.

To the right-hand side of the hallway is the family room, recent refurbishments have revealed some stunning stonework and an original door, ( now closed off ) which would have provided access to the neighbouring period property.

The sitting room has parquet flooring, an open fireplace, and French doors to the garden, making for the perfect space to enjoy both long summer evenings and cosy winter nights.

The kitchen/dining room is fitted with a generous number of units, a central island, and integrated appliances. The dining area has exposed stonework and plenty of room for a table and chairs.

With bi-folding doors to the courtyard garden, it offers that "inside-outside" feel that works so well for casual dining with friends and family.

The dining room is accessed off the hallway, exposed stone walls, parquet flooring, and a feature fireplace provide the backdrop for more formal dining and weekend lunches.

The sellers have enjoyed many years of Christmas festivities in this delightful room.

A utility room, rear lobby, and W.C complete the ground floor accommodation in the main house.

The first floor has four large double bedrooms ( two with vanity units ) and a large single room, which would lend itself to being utilised as a study. Serving the bedrooms on this floor are the family bathroom, a shower room, and two W.C's

The second floor has three further double bedrooms, which offer huge flexibility to be utilised as bedrooms, studio, study, or a cinema room as the current vendors have done.

The middle bedroom has a loft ladder, which provides access to the huge loft space above, which has good head height, and Velux windows, making for an ideal teenager's den!

The rear lobby in the property provides access to the fabulous one-bedroom annexe, which enjoys exposed timbers, whitewashed stone walls, and a wood-burning stove.

On the ground floor of the annexe you will find a kitchen, and a shower room, the first floor has a double bedroom and super open-plan sitting/dining room.

The annexe provides self-contained accommodation, which is ideal for multigenerational living, or a potential income generator.

To the rear of the annexe, there is a very useful workshop/storeroom.

The courtyard garden is an oasis of colour, it is hard to understand until you view this property how tranquil it feels given it is within striking distance of the town centre where you can make the most of all the amenities on offer.
With plenty of space for a table and chairs, it lends itself to al-fresco dining, or just enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning.
